The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer

I wasn't a fan of the first.

 

Part of me hopes Sony royally screws this so that maybe they'll just give up and let the rights go back to Marvel.

The guy at my local comic shop said that he heard from somebody who was able to get an early viewing that Electro gets like, 15 minutes in the whole film and he steals the show in those 15 minutes. Outside of that, he said it just felt like Spider-Man 3. A lot of characters being thrown at you, but nothing really making sense.


So, if that's true, I'll be bummed. I'm going to go see it, so I guess I'll find out. THIS is what happens when a company (like Sony) has rights to ONE superhero from a major comic label that is also doing movies based on the comics, and doing it great and molding them to intermingle a good bit. Sony is trying to build the rogue's gallery and create this seemingly dense world for Peter Parker to be in all in one movie. If Marvel were doing this movie, Spidey would have one clear enemy, with MAYBE one minor enemy employed by the main enemy thrown in. And it would be amazing from start to finish, most likely. Marvel hasn't put out a movie that I didn't like.


Sony and Fox need to do the right thing. Sell the rights back to Marvel (Marvel could literally give them both blank checks) so that Marvel can put Wolverine and Spidey in the Avengers and fulfill every comic nerd's wet dream.

I don't really wanna see Wolverine and Spider Man in the Avengers, but I do wanna see Marvel having full control.

 

Trailers for this make me think they're gonna have Harry Osborn be the first Green Goblin rather than his dad.  That would be some major screwing with comic history.

Bet money that they screw up the Hobgoblin background in a few more movies.

I've also heard rumors that the movie after this one, they are planning on Venom/Carnage. That'd be cool, but again, feels rushed.

The Spider Man mythos has obvious 'franchise' potential.  Why rush it?

 

Hollywood has no patience.  Everything has to be "now now now".

Spider-Man and x men are half a billion box office draws. No way either sells to marvel. Fox has been killing these new x men movies though

It's just an overall bad movie. They try to fit way too many plot threads into the movie and that results in none of them becoming fully developed. The villains are pretty much all awful. Rhino is in the movie every bit of 5 minutes and when he's actually talking it's cringe worthy. It's some of the most over the top acting I've ever seen in a comic book movie. Dane Dehaan is actually really good as Harry Osbourne but after he turns into the Green Goblin things go down hill. Every actual Goblin scene there is is shown in the trailer so he becomes underutilized too.I never actually bought into him and Peter being best friends and the design of the Goblin itself is completely awful. Don't let anyone else fool you though, Harry Osbourne is the main villain of this movie. Now onto Electro,he was so bad that I can't even describe it. Yes, the actual visual effects of him were cool but the acting and writing off him was awful. He was cheesy and hammed it up the entire movie. Parts of Jamie Fox's performance really reminded me of the Joel Schumacker Batman movies.

 

 

The only saving grace the movie has are the fight scenes. Which are actually few and far between.  Besides that I couldn't recommend it at all.

That's one thing I'm pissed about. How was Harry COMPLETELY ignored in the first movie? Why didn't they at least sprinkle him in to build that relationship with Peter if they were going to reveal him as Greengoblin in this movie?

Really bums me out, because I particularly enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man (so much that I bought it on Blu-ray, and I rarely buy any movies).

Sony cleary wants to copy the Marvel model of having a shared universe. The next film after this will reportedly be a sinister six film.

Spiderman doesn't interest me too much for some reason.  Same with a lot of superhero flicks.  I like X-Men though.
